Joana only started ballet classes in October of 2014 but her first ballet shoes no longer fit. Since I didn’t have the courage to throw them out, I decided to make them part of her bedroom’s decoration.
I bought a box-frame, found some pretty cardstock for the background and taped the ballet shoes to it with double-sided foam mounting tape. I also placed some crinkled paper on the inside of each shoe to prevent the tip from looked deflated or squished.
I’d like for the overall shape of the shoe to look a bit tidier, but on the whole I was pleased with the result.
